Barbara Walters doesn’t want her afterlife special, “Heaven: Where Is It? How Do We Get There?” which airs tomorrow night, to come across like “Comp. Religion 101,” but all the same, she’s covered all her spiritualism-beat bases: Catholic Cardinals and the Dalai Lama; suicide bombers, Mitch Albom and Liz Tyler… And also Ted Haggard, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, at whom she points the semi-sharp barb: “‘Does God mean for you to be so judgmental?'” The special will air at 9 pm E.S.T. Tuesday, on ABC.
